In a hugely stylish masterpiece of stand design, created by famed Italian interior designer, Marco Carini, Granorte demonstrated to Domotex’s 45,000 visitors that cork is in the ascendancy.

With a refreshed and more compact collection for 2018, Granorte showed excellence in cork product design, harnessing the natural material’s aesthetic and performance qualities to deliver innovative flooring products. One of the highlights included the availability of KENKO on selected styles, a 0.25mm polymer wear layer that is PVC and plasticizer-free. Made in Japan, KENKO means Granorte products use 10-times less plastic than equivalent vinyl/HDF floors.

Alongside technical innovation, Granorte’s stand showcased the wonderful natural aesthetic of cork, covered from head-to-toe in the varieties produced by the manufacturer. From high-texture raw bark through to refined classic looks, the scope was extraordinary and showed just how versatile this natural material is.

Paulo Rocha, R&D, Granorte, said: “Cork really is a wonderful material to work with.

“Through our manufacturing technologies, we can hone it into a remarkable number of different looks and textures. Yet, it is more than just aesthetics that make it a great choice and cork offers acoustic absorption, thermal insulation and great underfoot comfort. As people increasingly focus on the future of our planet and search for better flooring materials, the combination of sustainable natural material, unusual aesthetics and great performance are making cork an increasingly popular choice.”

The space also presented a brand-new corporate identity for Granorte, reflecting its position as one of the world’s best suppliers of cork products. With a range beyond flooring, including wall, fabric, furniture and the stunning NuSpa collection of sanitary ware, there are few others versed so beautifully in the creation of cork products.
